GNOME Online Accounts extensibility

Are there plans for making service providers in GOA pluggable?  

Here is my use case:

I really want to get rid of gwibber-accounts for configuring accounts in
Gwibber.  It makes sense to use GOA for this, however gwibber supports
quite a few social networks as well as supporting third party service
plugins.  So anyone can add support for a new social network without
changing gwibber.  So to transition to using GOA, we would need to
include support for all the social networks Gwibber supports out of the
box, and provide a way for third party developers to include the
necessary provider for GOA.  

This really won't be manageable if all the providers need to be merged
upstream with GOA and included in a release.
